Ever since things like the telephone and internet and email and Skype it’s been pretty easy to collaborate with vendors from around the world no matter where you live. We love this! It gives brides and grooms so many more options that might not be available to them in their tiny, or super traditional, hometown. But there’s still a thrill (at least for wedding nerds like me!) when you find someone awesome in your own backyard.
Such is the case with Dapper Paper and Southern Weddings! Chris and Elizabeth are practically our neighbors — they’re based in Raleigh — and though we’ve never met, we ARE collaborating on an awesome project that I can’t wait to share soon! In the meantime, I thought they’d make a perfect choice for my inaugural “paper pick.” All of the images in this post are their custom designs.
Chris and Elizabeth love design, food, music, and pajamas…. and oh yes, they specialize in designing unique wedding stationery! From invites to posters, they can handle it all and handle it well. But, as they say, they’re not tied down to weddings; they design for any occasion. They also LOVE special projects, which is how we got hooked up with them (see above!). Best of all, ALL of their designs are hand-drawn and professionally typeset by the husband-and-wife team. Kudos, you two!
Besides their stellar design sense, what I love most about Dapper Paper is their ability to think outside the box and their cheeky sense of humor. They just seem like cool cats you’d love to hang out with, you know?
You can visit Dapper Paper on their blog, at their Etsy shop, or through their Twitter. Spiffy!
Just so we’re all on the same page, all of my Paper Picks and Handmade Finds are simply things I’ve found and loved. These posts are NOT paid advertising, they’re just a way for me to share my faves with you!
